Sandrine Malotaux (Head of Documentary Negotiations Department): DOAJ is one of the most valuable initiatives launched in the last 15 years: a simple and effective infrastructure, considerably helpful to librarians, researchers, authors and publishers.
It provides the most up-to-date and thorough information and promotes Open Access in the most efficient way – no frills and impeccable. Couperin.org is very proud to support DOAJ.
